Quotes

With One Line Of ‘Amituofo’

余年近七十,不复事吟哦。
看经费眼力,作福畏奔波。
何以慰心眼,一句阿弥陀。
早也阿弥陀,晚也阿弥陀。
纵饶忙似箭,不废阿弥陀。

白居易 (唐代诗人)

In my declining years, nearing seventy, I no longer compose poetry.
Reading sutras tolls my eyesight; creating blessings, I fear rushing about.
How do I console my innermost heart? With one line of ‘Amituofo’.
In the morning too ‘Amituofo’, in the evening too ‘Amituofo’.
Even when busy like an arrow, never ceasing reciting of ‘Amituofo’.

Bai Juyi (Tang Dynasty poet)
